We ❤ Wurtsboro!

As we start up a fresh new week, here on the Wakin' Up with CJ and Jess Show, we need to start by picking out a brand new Wolf "hometown of the week"! Sue joined us on the show today and helped us give our "wheel O' Towns" a big fat spin and it landed on Wurtsboro, New York.

Any town that gets the honor of being the Wolf "hometown of the week" gets to experience many benefits, including us doing what we can to spread the word about some of the great things to do, eat or sometimes its even a chance for us to learn something really cool about the town. If you live, or have ever done something fun in Wurtsboro we need to hear from you.

Fans of the show told us that the airport is a small one that is primarily used for "gliders". According to their website the airport offers airplanes rides and a "once in lifetime experience" of gliding in the sky inside a small air glider. Glider rides start at $120 for 15 minutes. Rides can be booked here.

Hudson Valley Restaurants With the Most Critical Violations in 2021

Critical violations are those that can cause immediate harm to consumers such as undercooked food and improper storage of ingredients. Other violations like inadequate handwashing facilities or dirty conditions are noted as non-critical violations.

The ten restaurants below all received four or more critical violations during their latest inspection of 2021. In some cases, the restaurants were given the opportunity to correct the violations by inspectors and have done so. Just because a restaurant is on this list doesn't mean that they are currently in violation of the health code. However, the Board of Health does think it's important to be armed with information on how seriously a restaurant takes kitchen cleanliness, food safety and other important rules that affect the food you feed your family.
